1001 Faces of Istanbul

... one of those places difficult to define. Some would call it 'capital of the World' or 'capital of the Empire', others 'cradle of cultures' and others 'the worst place to live'; ' hell on earth'.

I've spent more than 1001 days in this city and I still find it difficult to reply to a simple question: 'What is Istanbul like?' Maybe it's because I have been here too long and I've come to realise that there is no simple answer to this question. Istanbul has many faces, many nuances if you will. It is difficult to explain them to a total stranger or a person who has never visited the city. Even though you have visited the city once, you have probably lifted only one veil from its face. If you were born here, this doesn't make you an Istanbul expert neither.

Another Festival for Film Lovers
Just one month passed, since the !f Istanbul Independent Film Festival and here it comes another film festival. The 35th Istanbul Film Festival will start on April 7th and will last for 10 days. Another great event for film lovers in Istanbul. Unlike the previous, the movies at the 35th Istanbul Film Festival will be screened in 10 cinemas around Istanbul.

What to watch?
Most of the movies at the festivals already won an award at the other festivals, so you will defenitely find something for yourself. Here is the list of all movies and here a nice chart, where you can see at what time movies are screened. I will defenitely go for one of my favourite actor, Ricardo Darín and his new movie Truman. What's your pick?

Festival will also offer something for children - this year only 2, but maybe in the following years there will be more movies.

Please save me from this speculation.
